ABS & ESP/BAS Amber Lights Stay On (2005 Chrysler 300C)

A half minute after I left my place last week with my 2005 Chrysler 300C, both the ABS & ESP/BAS amber lights came on, and they stayed on. A day later, I noticed that the amber light on my cruise control lever did not come on either when I tried to activate the cruise. Is there a fuse that controls both circuits? If so, where abouts is it? Thanks.

Have the trouble codes read and let us know so we can better help. I'm sure its not the fuse but a problem somewhere. All of those modules are connected and when there is a fault in one seams like all 3 lights are triggered. Mine was caused by failed rear abs sensor.

See my garage for upgrades

Thanks for the reply Hot Rod. I keep my vehicle outside so it's probably a good bet that the snow, ice and frigid conditions had something to do with this. I don't have a code reader for the car yet, but I just wanted to check the possibility of a blown fuse. Well, it sounds like I'll probably have to take the vehicle over to the dealer to get the problem repaired.

Any Autozone will read the code for free and with that we can better assist you in finding the problem. As far as the fuse I'm sure it would say in the car manual

Have a close look at the cable from the wheel sensors. If one of them gets frayed or snaps off, this will cause your symptoms. Ice damage can do this very effectively

Rickk, I was studying your situation and the exact same thing happened to my 2005 300c. I am in the panhandle of Florida and we had a cold snap, it got down to about 25 degrees . I am suspecting that had something to so with mine, let me know what you think. As a matter of fact maybe we need to put a warm blanket on our 300c during cold weather LOL.

Could be true but if it stays on more than 3 startups to operating temp it is a problem. I live in upstate NY and 4 months a year are around 10-35*

Well, I decided to take my 2005 Chrysler 300C to the Chrysler dealership last Tuesday to have the problem checked out. It didn't take them long to find out that they weren't getting a reading from the rear passenger ABS sensor. Afterwards, the Service advisor told me that the tone ring on the rear passenger axle was too rusted, but they did have another ABS sensor in stock. I then told him to go ahead and replace the ABS sensor. Later, the Service advisor told me that the ABS & ESP/BAS amber lights soon came on again. The total bill (diagnostics, new ABS sensor) was about $193 that day.

The Service advisor then recommended replacing the rear passenger axle shaft (which contained the tone ring), but he said that they would have to order the shaft. I then set up an appointment for Thursday to get it replaced. The total bill for that day was about $435, but that took care of the problem.

You could've have replaced the ABS ring only for $20.
